Storm

Mark your calendars, the Seattle Storm's title defense is about to begin.

The WNBA announced the regular-season schedule for the league's 25th annual season Tuesday afternoon, with an opening day of May 14th.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Storm will open the season on May 15th against the Las Vegas Aces, a rematch of the 2020 WNBA Finals. 

Each team will play just 32 regular season games, rather than the normal 36, due to " the ongoing pandemic and the Olympic break," the league said in a release. The Olympic Break is scheduled for July 15th through August 11th. 

The regular sason ends September 19th and will be followed by the WNBA Playoffs. 

May 15th will be the first opportunity for the Storm's faithful to see the latest additions, Candice Dupree and Katie Lou Sampson, in action. 

Natasha Howard, the WNBA’s 2019 Defensive Player of the Year and a two-time champion during her three seasons with Seattle, will meet her former team for the first time when the Storm visits Barclays Center on Wednesday, Aug. 18 (4 p.m. PST) and Friday, Aug. 20 (4 p.m. PST). Howard will return to Seattle for the first time with the New York Liberty on Thursday, Sept. 2 (7 p.m. PST).

Here's the full schedule.
